NOLA Copy & Print kicks off its two-store grand opening celebration tomorrow, starting at 2:30 p.m. at the Uptown location (3401 S. Broad St., 821-4001; www.marchandink.com), with the party traveling at 4:30 p.m.—transportation provided—to the New Orleans East location (9301 Lake Forest Blvd., Suite 116, 241-2740; www.marchandink.com).
In addition to these new locations, founder Percy Marchand has a 2-year-old Gentilly store (2051-B Caton St., 304-9140; www.marchandink.com) which replaced his original Gentilly Boulevard storefront, then known as Marchand Ink, which had been in business for several years before being ravaged by a fire in 2010.
According to a press release, this expansion makes NOLA Copy & Print the largest locally-owned and -operated print shop in the greater New Orleans area.
Marchand says, "After Hurricane Katrina, most companies in this industry did not return or cut back their operations. This is what New Orleans is all about, though—picking up the pieces and building even better."
